ISRA Thursday Bulletin - May 18, 2017

by Richard Pearson

During this ongoing fight for our Second Amendment rights, I am forever grateful for the support of members and Second Amendment friends.  I am thankful that we are standing together, united because that is the only way we can win.  Just last November, we witnessed an election that caused promotion of anti-gun leadership in the Illinois Democrat Party.  Because of that event, we are now facing the worst of California-New York-New Jersey style gun control in the history of the Illinois General Assembly.
There is no question that this is going to be a long, long battle, but I want to assure you that the ISRA has the resolve and is going to be in the fight for the long haul.  The ISRA is committed to preserving our Second Amendment rights in Illinois.  As I have mentioned time and time again, this fight may never be over.  No matter, the ISRA will be there for you, your children, and your great, great, great grandchildren.  The ISRA will never quit!
Yet, this battle and every battle in Springfield requires a lot more than resolve, it requires members and money.  Every ounce of support that we obtain from our friends has been a thanksgiving of sorts to the ISRA.  The support from you and our other friends has been necessary in defending our Second Amendment rights and shooting sports here in Illinois.
The support we are receiving from members, firearm dealers, Springfield Armory, and Rock River Arms is keeping the ISRA in the fight.  We are using your support in every way possible- shoe leather on the ground in the Capitol, direct mailers, internet advertising, gun shop visits, gun show flyers, sportsmen banquet events, etc.  Each friend we have is making this happen and we thank you.
This is not the time to sit on the sidelines or in the bleachers; now is the time to join the fight!  Share this with everyone you know, and ask them to become a friend of the ISRA by supporting us and joining today. Together we can win!!
